The ORDO, or Liturgical Calendar, is an essential tool for bishops, priests, deacons, religious, parish staff and volunteers, liturgy committees, and school staff.

The ORDO provides detailed information for each day of the Liturgical Year which begins the First Sunday of Advent and ends with the 34th Week in Ordinary time. References to the Roman Missal, the Lectionary (for Sundays and Solemnities, Weekdays, and Ritual Masses, Masses for Various Needs and Occasions, Votive Masses, Masses for the Dead) the Liturgy of the Hours, and the Book of Gospels are also provided.

Explanations of the National Collections, the Proper Calendar for the Dioceses of Canada, special dates for planning in 2024 and a Table of Moveable Dates are also included.

The 2023-2024 ORDO introduces a new format. Pastoral and explanatory notes are found online on the CCCB website. These notes offer positive, practical and pastoral ideas and suggestions for the liturgy. Subjects include:

• Reflections on the “Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy” Sacrosanctum Concilium
• Catechesis and suggestions for celebrating Mass well on Sundays and in a variety of circumstances
• Pastoral Notes for the celebration of Sacraments, including updated notes on the celebration of Matrimony, and Funerals
• Rubrics and details governing Ritual Masses, Masses for Various Needs and Occasions and Masses for the Dead
• Practical notes for the celebration of liturgical seasons, monthly devotions and particular celebrations
